FRIDAYfinds! - The Written Note

When was the last time you received a handwritten note in the mail?
A WHAT???
Yes, I know it is practically extinct but not yet...


I've always been a fanatic for beautiful stationery 
It's such a civilized detail that says so much about who you are.
And there is nothing like opening an envelope that feels good in your hand.
Quality paper and a well-written note makes a statement that you care.
So I decided to share a few of my favorites with you
in hopes that it might inspire you to find your OWN stationery style. 

Crane gold shell notecard
  I love Crane stationary.  My wedding invitations were Crane.  
So were both of my childrens' birth announcements.
And I was not surprised that I was drawn to this conch shell notecard by Crane.
I think I'll adopt it for my dream Cottage by the Sea!  Great color, too.



Kate Spade vibrant green flat card
Isn't this the cutest?  The peacock is absolutely adorable in red 
and the Kelly green liner is the perfect complement.



Bernard Maisner easel and canvas note cards
I'm in love with these hand painted pieces!
Good choice if you like to mix it up to match your mood.


Smythson Bunting card
In the spirit of the Summer Olympics, why not show your loyalty to all things British
with this sophisticated note card the bears the host country's flag.

I plan to follow my own advice and send out a personal note to a good friend this week.
So who will be the lucky recipient of  your mailing?

Here's to SNAIL MAIL!
